Healthy 3-Bean Vegetarian Chili

It’s football season! We love making some warm foods that fill the house with delicious smells every Sunday. While Trevor is a Jets fan, I’ll forever be a Giants fan. It’s tough not being able to watch our teams on our local network, but we make do. 🙂 And the food definitely helps make up for it!

So, what did we make this Sunday? CHILI! It’s cool in Florida which means the rest of the country is even colder. This is the perfect meal to warm anyone up. It’s made from mostly pantry staples, cooks right in the Instant Pot (easy!) and it’s insanely good. It’s also healthy, which is an added bonus. You can put the chili on top of rice, dip some bread into it or even even it with some yummy tortilla chips. YUM!

However you eat it, you’ll love this chili recipe! Let me know how you like eating your chili in the comments below!
